Yemi Alade has been gearing up for her third studio project BlackMagic which was initially slated for an October release. The singer has been doubling up effort to remain on playlist since she dropped her Mama Afrique EP earlier this year, following the release of two singles off the project. Recently, Yemi linked up with South African duo Mafikizolo for “O Fana Nawe“ and with the year coming to a close, Yemi has released two new singles, expected off her unreleased BlackMagic album. “Single & Searching” which features Falz and “Heart Robber”, both seem to indicate that fans will perhaps get the album sooner than expected.
Having previously collaborated with Falz in 2014 on “Marry Me”. “Single and Searching” the second single off her forthcoming album and their third collaboration together, marks the effortless chemistry between these two. “Single And Searching” flips the script to their previous collaboration “Marry Me” . Gender roles are reversed on their new single where Falz is the single man attempting to lure his love interest under the pretext of being single.

10 seconds into the song and you already can tell “Heart Robber” is a typical Yemi Alade song , packed with all the right amount of sentimental words, “Yes we dey fight most times, we dey settle” and wordplay “Sit back relax, let me wash you like shampoo”. The third single on the tracklist of her BlackMagic. Yemi’s art is romance and “Heart Robber” is Mama Africa measuring her affection for a lover. “See the love wey I get for you na times two”. Mama Africa showed up and out, delivering her smooth and lyrics against a mid-tempo guitar rift and Afro beat with hint of a Mariachi sample.
